The Meal Plan | 11.18.2014 | Weekly Preparations

Yesterday I roasted vegetables.  Broccoli, Cauliflower, Sweet Potatoes and Beets.  I wanted to have a good plan for lunches as I think about the marathon I'm scheduled to run on Sunday.  The gun goes off at 7am.  There are instructions to be at the starting line no later than 5:30am.  Why so early?  At least there will be plenty of time to find a philly cheesesteak afterward.  

This week I'm not going to pay any attention to how my legs feel, or how my shoes feel a smidge to big and stiff.  I'm just going to try to eat good food and go to bed early.  The latter will be a cinch with Lila by Marilynne Robinson waiting for me on my nightstand.

Monday:  Chickpea Saute over rice.  From Plenty. 
Tuesday:  The Weekly Lentil.  Lentil Burgers.
Wednesday:   Beef Stew.  Can't wait.  
Thursday:  Pasta and Red Sauce with Garlic Bread and Ceasar Salad.  Load of Carbs.
Friday:  Pizza and anything I can put my hands on.  Carbo-loading continued.  

I also made this salad to have on hand for lunches.  She never disappoints.


  1. Yummy! I roasted some red onion and cant get enough of it. :)

  2. I'll be doing the same thing today; prepping a few lunches for this week. I'm wishing you the best this morning running the marathon!! I bet you'll do great; Good luck!

    Btw, my husband (3 weeks ago) started training for his first half marathon next year and has been looking for solid advice, resources, to make sure he trains well enough. If you have any tips to offer, I know he would be very grateful. :)

    1. Thank you so much! I would tell your husband to take the advice I ignored -tis better to start out slow and end well, than the other way around. :) Thanks for stopping by.

    2. Thank you! I'll be sure to pass that bit of wisdom along to my husband. :)
